Statement From Met-Track CEO
Met-Track founder and Chief Executive Officer, John Powell MBE, wishes everyone associated with the project a safe and healthy time through the current unprecedented national crisis. The project was suspended immediately the Prime Minister ordered that schools across the country close until further notice.
"Met-Track has become one of the most successful youth diversion schemes in London," said John, "and we fully intend to restart full project delivery as soon as this crisis is over. We ourselves face immense challenges later this year with the National Lottery Community Fund having declined our application for further continuation funding beyond August, but after 15 years of operating we have no intention of giving up!
"This said, at this time, our thoughts are with our coaches, the school teachers, parents and partners we have worked with, hoping that they stay fit and healthy, not to mention of course all the young Londoners we have worked with too."
